Who will battle the 15-pound hamburger?
They just couldn’t let the 6-pound burger stand alone in all its glory, could they? Trumping itself, Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, Pa., has again become home to the word’s biggest hamburger, nearly tripling the size of its giganto-burger to 15 pounds. Anyone who can wolf down this megameal in fewer than five hours gets cash, a T-shirt, a hall-of-fame posting and doesn’t pay a cent for the monstrous pile of cooked cow. I wonder if Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas, the 99-pound current national eating champion, will be the next to win at Denny’s Beer Barrel. Worldwide, competitive eaters fear this lightweight eating machine. The new mondo-burger also brings to mind the sickening sight of the guy with “determination” in the new Visa campaign who attempts to stuff a similarly ginormous burger down his gullet. Excuse us as we consider going vegan.
